got really into nasa because i got really into the right stuff. i read tom wolfe's book. i was really involved in the shuttle movement as a kid. i was a total astronaut freak. it was so devastating. and largely forgotten really in the culture along with the "columbia" disaster as well. people forget the first two shuttles were both tragically destroyed. >> that's right. >> i remember apollo one. >> that was before my time. >> john: apollo with grisham the second american in space. >> part of the problem was since his -- problem with the hatch on the mercury, they made it very difficult to open the hatch on the apollo capsule. they didn't have a minute. so that was one of the major changes they made. >> good morning to discuss on nasa tragedies. >> good morning, everybody! >> i would like to bring up something a little positive. do you remember back in 2009 when president obama was first sworn in and we heard about the secret g.o.p. strategy session in the caucus room? d.c. restaurant and all of the big republicans decanter, demint fisher-price guy came. they plotted how they would sab
